BLURB: Scott has been in love with his best friend Craig for years, but watching Craig with his manipulative boyfriend has worn Scott down, and he knows he needs a break from the pain and maybe a change of scenery and perspective. His twin sister, Karen, convinces him to spend a summer in Paris.

Karen is sick and tired of seeing Scott suffer, and she’s not going to stand for it anymore. She confronts Craig and tells him what he’s been missing by spurning Scott’s affection in favor of a jerk who mistreats him.

When Craig unknowingly breaks Scott’s heart, Craig opens his eyes—and his own heart—to the possibility of a future with Scott. He plans to use the time while Scott’s abroad to orchestrate a romantic surprise that will show Scott they belong together. But when he sees Scott with another man at the airport, Craig fears he’s too late.

 

leviThis was my first book by this author. For me it is always a bit difficult to review a short story because I have to avoid spoilers, so let’s begin …

Scott… he is a sweet 18 year old boy who suffers in silence He has been in love with his best friend, Craig, for years now. Not wanting to jeopardize his friendship he never confessed his feelings to Craig. He sees no hope for more than friendship because Craig is in a committed relationship. My heart went out for Scott, his tender love, his burning desire and the torture of seeing the love of his young life making out in front of him …daily.

Karen … she is Scott’s twin sister who has had enough! I mention Karen because in the book several times we will read from her point of view. She loves Scott and is very angry with Craig for involuntarily hurting his brother. At their birthday party something happens (you will need to read the book to find out what exactly occurred) and that makes Karen make a move to salvage his brother’s tender heart of …

Craig … he is a tall and muscly build jock. During the book he was on my jackass list almost till the end. Not so clever if you ask me and a bit egoistic. He doesn’t see what he has in front of him till it’s almost too late. Realizing that Scott is more than just a friend for him, he decides to face Scott and tell him that he truly loves him!

The story is sweet and has emotional angst. I don’t know about you, but feel free to comment so we can finally know more from you dear reader, but for me emotional angst is a go! I enjoyed reading this story, it’s sweet, it’s emotional. It’s perfect for a rainy afternoon sitting in your favorite armchair with hot cocoa in your hands …and read!

I rate this book with an honest 4 Stars.
